We had a delicious and creative New Year's Eve dinner here - from fried polenta triangles with cod to scallops to veal, everything was just perfect! The wine selection was also very good, and the service was delightful. There's a beautiful terrace which should be lovely in spring/summer. A definitive YES for Il Malatesta!

Spend a nice evening next to the open fire. The atmosphere is very nice, especially for a romantic couple dinner. Price are Swiss prices - quite expensive Food: small menu, good, but not fantastic, Pricey Wine: small, but good collection. Should have more local wines from Tecino & Italia Service: Friendly and active

Food is delicious and presented with art. Portions are unfortunately very small, which can make the experience quite pricey for hungry people. Interior decoration is very characteristic, pleasant set up for a romantic or cosy dinner. Service is superb: friendly, smiling and accommodating waiters attending the table make you feel at home.

The staff is friendly and forthcoming. The wine list is not to extensive, but there are some nice choises. All in all a place where you can... More
